2016 Revolver No.7 Barossa Valley Shiraz

Revolver wines are small batch wines made by Daniel Zuzolo, formerly of Primo Estates who works closely with our own Mike Farmilo. Daniel says of this wine: "A real fruit cakeā€¦ but in a VERY good way. It permeates through the aroma and palate, along with spices and boysenberry. This wonderful wine is a real balancing act. Powerful, yet restrained. Deep, yet aromatic". You be the judge...

Tasting Notes by Nick Bulleid MW
Background

The summer of 2016 was unusual in that all the hot weather came in December 2015, with a few periods of extreme heat. As the grapes were early in their development, still green and hard, the heat had little impact compared with after they had changed colour. From late January the temperatures became milder during the day and cooler at night accompanied by regular rainfall events, all good conditions for flavour development.

Several small parcels were sourced from different vineyards scattered through Barossa Valley. These were crushed and fermented in 8 Tonne open fermenter with a relatively cool ferment to encourage aromatic fruit. The wine was matured in used French oak hogsheads for 18 months.

Colour
Deep red, with a touch of purple.

Nose
Rich, with ripe dark plum and chocolate aromas.

Structure / Palate
Full-bodied, with very good depth of rich fruit. Lots of fine, soft tannin and good length.

This is a typically full-flavoured Barossa, with generous fruit and understated oak.
It is ready now and will mature further, gaining complexity past 2023.
